The Daily Post (12 Jan, p13) reports that two main options have emerged which will be discussed this week before recommendations are made to the North Wales Health Authority.
The first of the these would base the new trust boundaries on the patient referral areas of three acute hospitals - Bangor, Glan Clwyd amd Wrexham. Community health services would be linked with the patient referral areas.
The second option is to create three NHS Trusts for North Wales, linking together acute and community services and basing them on geographical areas.
Buckley town councillor Ken Iball said: 'We represent the grassroots and yet we're not being officially consulted. Quite frankly, I don't know why but it seems to be almost policy in Wales that the people who really matter, at the sharp end who meet the public, are asked for their views after the event.
'It would appear that long discussions have been going on and we've had no chance of input. I think its wrong when you can have voluntary bodies consulted, yet elected people are almost totally ignored,' he added.
